CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Chuck Jordan has coached the Conway High School football team for the last 29 seasons. One of the better athletes to come his way in that time is quarterback Mykal Moody. But as sports reporter Joe Murano shows us, he's not just garnering attention in Conway.
Mykal Moody has gotten well acquainted with end zones in the last four years. But while he tries to take Conway to a state title in his senior season, he also is readying for the next step in his life.
While standardized tests play a role in where he may spend the next four years, there's no lack of options for Moody. The letters come in droves, dating all the way back to his freshman season.
"I would just come home with a box of them," smiles Moody.
And they still haven't stopped, though at this point, Mykal has realized to take it all in stride.
"I have coaches call me, a lot of people in the area asking where I'm going to go to school," states Moody.
But to no surprise. His talents are something coaches and teammates alike dream about.
"Not very often do you have an athlete with the skill set that Mykal has, but also the brains," boasts Conway Head Coach Chuck Jordan.
In between college visits, the focus now remains on winning more games for the Tigers.
"Mykal and I have been a combo for along time," says Conway wide receiver Malcolm Green, "we had that connection sophomore year, we had it junior and now."
"I go everyday and just make sure I have fun with my classmates, and it all goes well after that," explains Moody.
Mykal has said he is in no rush to eliminate or single out any particular college yet, because he wants to take his time before signing day comes in February.
